The final listing from this Museum shows the Lodestar and the Salis Helicopter
This Lockheed C60A-5-LO - Better known to us in NZ as the civilian Lockheed 18 Lodestar - was flown to NZ as VH-XUS on 19-11-1993. It is c/n 2388 and served with the US military as 42-55951, then onto the civil marked as NC17615, N17615, XA-SAX, N56LH and then to VH-XUS on 02-10-1992.
